Waiting, the DVR, and no picture.

Waiting for a report to "spool" for work, which sounds way more arty than it really is. No quilt, not yet at least, so no picture for you.

The DVR (digital video recorder) has changed my television viewing habits. I can record shows all day long, and zip through them in mere minutes. This is very effective for the shows I like on HGTV, DIY and the local PBS stations about sewing. I record quite a few shows during the day, and then fast forward through them on the weekend. If they do a project I don't care for? I just zip on by. Missed a step? Rewind. Very convenient.

This week, I ended up doing some sketches for more weeklies. Need to get my round robin project out the door. Did a few trades on ATCards.com. And I'm getting back to my "one hour a day" thing with my artwork. Just one hour a day, and I;m always surprised what I can get done.

The quilt studio is messy right now as I opened more boxes, and DH helped hang some wire and clip systems to hang my stuff from the walls. We realized we needed drywall anchors too late, and now have postponed that project until this weekend.

My mother will be in town, so I need a fast project to complete this week's quilt, but I am looking forward to having some time and getting a really complex one done in the near future.
